Welcome back!

The little-known agency at the heart of the FinCEN Files investigation is in the spotlight again, thanks to a new report by anti-corruption group Global Financial Integrity.

The organization brought together 19 anti-money laundering experts from government, the financial industry and academia to develop recommendations to reinvent the U.S. Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, an intelligence unit the report describes as underfunded, overstretched and behind the times.

The policy paper cites ICIJ and BuzzFeed News’ international investigation on the failures of the U.S.-led global enforcement system, which we found allows trillions in tainted dollars to flow freely through major banks despite repeated crackdowns.

Their recommendations echo many of the things experts told us need to be done to make the agency more effective. The group also calls for FinCEN to launch a “Manhattan Project” to improve its technology to keep up in the battle against dirty money, terrorism financing, and other emerging money laundering challenges.

The global fight against cross-border financial corruption was a focus of several high-profile reports published in the last week by leading international organizations …

ENDING THE SHELL GAME
The OECD, a club of rich nations, credited ICIJ investigations for fostering public interest in targeting the facilitators of sophisticated financial crimes in its first-ever report on what countries can do to crack down on lawyers, accountants, offshore specialists and other “professional enablers” who help rogue actors hide money and outsmart law enforcement.

TRILLIONS AT STAKE
The UN FACTI panel convened world leaders and high-level stakeholders to discuss international strategies to rein in rampant tax abuse costing countries urgently-needed revenue to tackle poverty, climate change, inequality and the post-pandemic economic recovery. Here’s what they had to say about the recommendations.

#AMPLIFYRAPPLER
Journalist Maria Ressa, founder of the Philippine news outlet Rappler, faces up to six years in prison on cyber libel charges for reporting connected to President Rodrigo Duterte. Last week, journalists around the world showed their support with a video series by Forbidden Stories chronicling Rappler’s investigations on financial crime and corruption.

SEE YOU AT MOZFEST
ICIJ’s Emilia Díaz-Struck and Miguel Fiandor Gutiérrez will be presenting a session on how AI can help investigative journalism at MozFest on Tuesday, March 9, sharing what they’ve learned and uncovered from ICIJ’s experiments with machine learning.
